About the event
Annette Langlois Grunseth has a BA in Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is a lifetime member of the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets. Her poems have appeared in Wisconsin Academy Review, Midwest Prairie Review, SOUNDINGS: Door County in Poetry, The Poetry Box/Poeming Pigeons, The Ariel Anthology and other publications. Several of her nature poems were set to original music and performed at Acadia University in Nova Scotia. She is retired from a career in Marketing and Public Relations and lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin, with her husband John, where they both advocate for equal rights.
Grunseth's book “Becoming Trans-Parent, One Family’s Journey of Gender Transition" shares the parental experience of an adult child transitioning from son to daughter. Through understandable poetry, information is woven around one family’s story to provide awareness about the journey of gender identity. Narrative poems explain changing avatars, using bathrooms, selecting clothing, grieving, passing as a woman, job discrimination, unique health issues, what happens to marriage and family, along with the joy that comes from seeing a child transition into living an authentic life. Copies of the book are available at www.annettegrunseth.com
Grunseth will speak from 6-7 PM. The remaining hour is reserved for sharing and support. There's no need to RSVP to join us in person, but if you prefer to join us via Zoom, RSPV and we will email a link to join us the night before the event.
